Thing is, since I got an Android phone I couldn't be bothered with my N8 anymore. Tha... moreBy coincidence I have the famous samsung droid too..even blackberry also... all of them are good phones and each of them is unique. But I never let them just idling for nothing in drawer.. I feel waste if I do so.. better to use it. Anyway, my money already spent for purchased them.....
But N8 is my choice which always be with me most of the time....

If your thinking that the N8 will get the FP1 update then be prepared fo disappointment. FP1 is for the 603, 700 and 703. The N8's Armm 11 CPU isn't capable of being unlocked to 1.3 GHz.
The N8 running Belle has a pathetic catalogue of widgets so it definitely needs quite a few new ones to catch up with whats available for Android phones. Speaking of Belle, there are quite a few people who have ditched their Nokia phones because of it. A friend of mine has ditched his N8 in favour of an iPhone of all things.
SHEIKH AHMAD IDRESS, 24 Apr 2012Its a wonderful phone i personoly used it its a phone with complete features I LOVE IT...........wow that nice of it but me i dont think so
I can buy any phone and i always come back to my N8, its simply the best all around phone!! I4s its boring and fragile,SG3 always ran out of power and is so bulky and feels so cheap!! ps my N8 Never drop calls !!! ;)

Don't expect anymore significant updates for the N8. Belle will have been the last one. You might get a couple of minor bug fixes but don't hold your breath.
What annoys me the most is that Nokia haven't bothered to enhance the camera app much and still only has the same basic functions from when it was first released (apart from adding 30fps video recording). My Samsung Galaxy S has just had an update to it's camera that allows still photos to be taken while recording a video. It's also got a lot more scene modes by default plus panorama and special effects built in. You have to install third party software on the N8 if you want these extra features.

Thing is, since I got an Android phone I couldn't be bothered with my N8 anymore. That's why it's used mostly as a bedside clock. If my Android phone had a similar app to Nokia's Sleeping Screen I'd turn off the N8 for good and put it in a draw out of the way.
The best Nokia I have ever used. Can multi-task between applications which saves a lot of time.
pals, Please when are we expecting another official update for this machine

worzel, 22 Apr 2012I get 5 days. Probably because it's only used as a bedside clock these days I guess you may get 7days if no widget with 1 homescreen and set into power saving mode with all minimum setting. Or mayber it will be longer if shut off the phone. Let it ring only when alarm is functioning in shutdown mode....hahhhahahaaaa...
Came on, just utilize it as what it capabale to do so..it has plenty of opportunity of functions. Not only become alarm clock.
for a price diff of hardly 1-2k, am extremely confused btw 701 and n8.. while 701 has a better processer, ram, rom, led flash and nfc capabilities, n8 is the best shooter n comes wit better accessories... plz help...
